The herbs use plants from Dayak ethnicity often used to solve infertility for women. The plants are Costus specious and BryophIlum pinnatum. This study aimed to determine the content of compounds present in the combination of Costus specious and ThyophIlum pinualum and the antifungal activity of Candida allncans. This research is qualitative descriptive. Costus specious and Bryophllum pinnatum extracted using a single maceration method with a water solvent. Phytochemical tests used the Meyer Test method, Dragendorf Test for alkaloids, Wilstater Test for flavonoids, Lieberman Burchard Test for triterpenoids, Forth Test for saponins, and FeC13 Test for tmnins. Antifungal activity test of Candida athicans used in vitro test the 100% diffusion method and microdilution with a concentration of 50%, 25%, 12.5%, 6.25%, 3.13%, 1.56%, 0.78%, and 0.39%. The results of phytochemical tests showed that the combination of aqueous extracts of Costus specious' andBryophIlum pinnatum is flavonoids and triterpenoids. The antifungal test showed that the combination extract inhibited the growth of Candida allncans with an inhibitory zone of 8.91 (moderate), 10.42 (moderate), and 8.23 (moderate). The MIC value at a concentration of 1.56% and the KBM value at a concentration of 3.13%.
